Association of the Miraculous Medal

“My child, the good God wishes to charge you with a mission.”  On July 18, 1830, Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal spoke these words to Sister Catherine Labouré, a novice of the Daughters of Charity in Paris, France. As we celebrate the 188th anniversary of Mary’s apparition to Saint Catherine, let us remember we, too, are Mary’s children. God wishes to charge us with the same mission of sharing his loving goodness with others. I invite you to send your petitions and burn a Votive Light at our Lady’s Altar, asking our Blessed Mother to obtain God’s graces for you, your family, and the entire world. They will be remembered in the Mass and prayers offered at the Shrine on July 18, the anniversary date.  Thank you for following Saint Catherine’s example and boldly accepting God’s mission given to us by our Lady.

At the Shrine of our Lady in Perryville, we will pray for your deceased relatives and friends throughout the month of November. On All Souls Day, November 2, we will celebrate Mass for those you wish to remember. Send me their names so they can be placed near Mary’s Shrine for All Souls Day, and if you also give us their anniversary dates, we will remember your loved ones at the appropriate time in the coming year. You can also burn Votive Lights for your departed loved ones as a visible reminder of your prayers for them. Read Fr. Kevin’s letter about the time-honored tradition of commemorating the faithful departed on All Souls Day.

It is hard to imagine that it has been 100 years since the Association of the Miraculous Medal began in Perryville, Missouri.  As we celebrate together the Association’s centennial anniversary, send us your prayer intentions to be included in the special Mass at our Lady’s Shrine on October 14 at 2:00 p.m., CT. I also invite you to burn Votive Lights at the Shrine as a sign of your prayer to Mary for her miraculous intercession for your intentions. Read Fr. Kevin’s letter with more information about the Association’s 100th anniversary, and our October event.

In the summer issue of the Miraculous Medal Bulletin you will find articles about devotion to the Miraculous Medal from Sr. Germain, who has been a Daughter of Charity for 60 years, and from Bella Davila, who will begin her pre-postulancy with the Daughters of Charity in September. Father Thomas Hinni, C.M. writes about “prayer on the run” which all of us can apply on a daily basis. An invitation to attend a special Mass on October 14 is included along with more pictures of the many renovation projects in the Church and on the grounds. You will also find our new Angel Votive Light Thinking of You Card that can be ordered along with our three 100th Anniversary rosaries.  We hope you will take time to read these articles in the 2018 Summer Bulletin along with Fr. Kevin’s own article on prayer and Don’s message “Just Listen.”
